Get comfortable and remove your dirty shoes, pour yourself a glass of Irish whiskey, and play Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds’ “Red Right Hand” on the record player to create the right atmosphere. The popular crime drama series “Peaky Blinders” concluded its fifth season in September 2019, leaving fans wondering about the future of the show. The COVID-19 pandemic affected the original plans for a seventh season, which would have wrapped up the story of Tommy Shelby and his gangster family. However, the resilient Shelbys have always adapted to unexpected challenges. The latest news reveals that “Peaky Blinders” will have one final season on television before concluding with a feature film. Let’s explore what we know about the upcoming sixth season of “Peaky Blinders.”
What is Peaky Blinders?
In addition to showcasing the dangers of smoking (despite its visually appealing portrayal on the show), “Peaky Blinders” follows the journey of the Shelby family in Birmingham during the early 1900s. Initially involved in gambling and manipulating horse races, this tough Irish immigrant family has climbed the social ladder over multiple seasons to become one of the most feared and influential criminal gangs in the United Kingdom.
Season 5 of “Peaky Blinders” was a tumultuous journey for the Shelby family, with Tommy at the helm. As the seasons progressed, Tommy’s pursuit of power led him to become a Member of Parliament. However, season 5 brought many challenges for the family. They experienced the loss of beloved members, witnessed Tommy compromising his own principles, and faced a formidable adversary in Oswald Mosley, a fascist politician portrayed by Sam Claflin. The season concluded with Tommy’s failed attempt to assassinate Mosley, leaving the family in a precarious position and setting the stage for future confrontations with this formidable foe.
When Is Peaky Blinders Season 6 Release Date?
The sixth season of “Peaky Blinders” is set to premiere on Netflix on June 10, 2022. Fans in the United Kingdom have already started watching the new episodes, as they began airing there earlier. However, for viewers who rely on Netflix, they will need to wait a bit longer. Unlike the weekly release schedule in the UK, Netflix will release all episodes at once, allowing for binge-watching. It’s important for fans to be cautious of spoilers, as the Netflix release will come several months after the finale has aired. Stay vigilant to avoid having the story spoiled before you watch it.
